    Snipes gives a looser, cooler performance this time around, though emotionally, it's closer to dead than undead. Blade II is for the horror faithful only; others will be grasping their crucifixes. show more

    Del Toro ("Cronos") is a stylish horrormeister, and he has created an evocative, foreboding atmosphere. But only a fan of this kind of mayhem could find a way into the story. show more

    What makes Blade 2 marginally better than "Blade," especially if you thought the first was a hollow spectacle? It has a plot. show more

    Much sillier - and the movie's nearly two-hour running time seems to last nearly as long as a vampire's afterlife. show more
